Very nice we'll run hotel. Room very nice. Good parking garage across the street. $7 a night. Breakfast buffet and Alaskan crab night plenty of good food and priced great. Having a BX with great prices was very handy. If you are not a Starbucks coffee fan try the lower level.

Everything about this hotel was great! The rooms are spacious and quiet. The staff is friendly and helpful. The surrounding grounds are just beautiful! Within walking distance to downtown. I would not hesitate to stay there again!

Great value in a Prime Waikiki Beach Location! While a little worn in some spaces, this military and veteran-only location is perfectly located right in the heart of Waikiki and on the beach!!! Our kids loved the run between rooms and pool, and we enjoyed that once we parked our car, we were so close to everything in Downtown Waikiki... More

Happy with the hotel, fantastic location, friendly staff. We booked year in advance to make sure we have a room with the view. Great restaurants with plenty choices. Make sure you go to the "comedy evening" - super funny. There is one thing however, next door Hilton is building another hotel and the construction noise is very bad and almost... More

I visited here in the past about 1 1/2 years ago and its nice to see that it still is a great property! Unfortunately, the only way that you can stay here is if you're being sponsored, by a military family, or you are a veteran yourself. The property is right next to the Hilton Hawaiian Village, and even if... More

A lot of reviews for this hotel refer to excellent accommodations while others refer to old, outdated accommodations. The confusion is this: There are 2 wings of this hotel. The New Wing and the Old Wing. The Old Wing has rooms that have been renovated and are nice. The New Wing has the outdated and older rooms. No, that is... More

Although you have to book months in advance, If you're active or retired military, you can't get better value than Hale Koa. Rooms appear nicely refreshed since my previous visit in 2014. Despite recent cost cutting measures, service is very pleasant - although it can often be slow at the bars during happy hour (but remember that this is Hawaii,... More

Yes, the rooms are outdated, but for military this is an awesome deal. The exchange downstairs is super convenient. There are two pools, one in a cool, shady area. The other is right by the beach. To get downtown you walk through a nice big park, and the property goes down to the beach too. The ocean views from most... More

This is probably my 100th plus time staying at the Hale Koa and my 5th time to the Luau! If anyone is military or able to stay on the property and wants the most memorable experience, then this is your hotel and luau to see. From the moment you pull up and valet/!bellman help you, you feel the pure Aloha... More

The grounds and the service are fantastic! We were warmly greeted by the staff and the beauty of the lobby area. We took part in the Luau and the Crab Feast during our stay. They were both very entertaining and reasonably priced. We really enjoyed the interactive events they had prior to the start of the Luau. And the food... More
